This topic describes how to install the first machine to run BMC Capacity Optimization in a new setup. For more information, refer to the following sections:
The following options are available for installing the product:
Install using the
cpit user: Follow the steps described in Preparing a host for installation, then continue with Installing the first machine. Some of the screens are available only when the installation is run using the
Install using the
root user: Follow the steps in the task below. You can use any existing user or create a new user for the product during installation. You can also enter the details required for setting up a shared repository.
All steps marked with are available only if you run the installer using the
A typical product install requires approximately 3 GB of available storage. The Data Warehouse aging configuration can be specified during installation and will impact the disk space required on the database server.
To install the first machine to run BMC Capacity Optimization in a new setup, perform the following task:
Unzip and extract the installation files: In the temporary directory that you created, unzip and extract the installation archive by using the following commands.
|Unzip command with example|
Extract command with example
Change the directory: After extracting the installation files, change to the directory where you extracted the install files. For instance /
Set the DISPLAY environment: Set the DISPLAY environment correctly to enable the Installer UI to launch.
|If the machine has a local graphical console: Set the DISPLAY environment variable to start the installer UI locally.|
If the machine does not have a local graphical console: Set the DISPLAY environment variable to export to an XServer on a different workstation.
Note: On the workstation used to display the UI, provide access grants to every incoming X window. If the workstation is a Linux machine, or running X over a bash shell for Windows, type the command
Run the installation: At the shell prompt, type
./setup.sh and press Enter.
Welcome screen and EULA: At the product installation Welcome screen, click Next. Agree to the End User License Agreement (EULA), and click Next again.
Directory Selection: In the Directory Selection screen, type the installation directory (default:
